Update: Antoine Winfield Fails to Show for Minicamp

Judd Zulgad and Kevin Seifert are both reporting (Seifert via Facebook) that Antoine Winfield was a no-show for today’s mandatory minicamp session.  There is no official word on why Antoine is not there, but we all know Antoine was trying to negotiate a contract extension this off-season and those talks broke down.  For what it’s worth, in a recent interview, Erin Henderson said Antoine intended showing up for the minicamp, which is, as I said before, mandatory.  Guess Erin’s not a great source.  Of course, it’s always possible Antoine’s absence had nothing to do with his contract, and it was excused.  And it’s also possible that I will look out my window and see a pig winging by.

The off-season was so dull until Antoine decided to hold out.  Good thing we now have something to discuss.

By the way, Judd Zulgad has been posting updates from minicamp on Twitter.  Evidently John David Booty just hit Percy Harvin for a 40 yarder.  Who needs Favre?  You can also follow me on Twitter.  I’m not at minicamp.  I’m in my apartment in my slippers lighting a candle in front of my picture of Fran Tarkenton aka He Who Speaks the Truth in the Face of Scorn.

Update:  No controversy.  Antoine Winfield is off attending a family funeral and has permission to miss the entire three-day minicamp.  Pig flying.

    Danzinski, I hope you FAIL to stay awake and your lighted candle burns your picture of Fran Tarkenton aka He Who Draws Scorn By Speaking Despicable Lies.  If any Branch Favridians come to your door with the truth, while you are in your slippers, just tell them to get the f**k off your property and leave you the f**k alone.
